    I was one of those who pre-ordered this item over a year ago and was let down by AA/DST. Unlike their previous releases of the TOS Communicator and Phaser (which were very good, especially for the price point) the Medical Tricorder was shamefully disappointing. Not sure why they dropped the ball on it but will definitely affect how I view future AA/DST releases. As the other two reviews state, the moire motor sound (like a coffee grinder), the display and the hand held scanner are outrageously chincy and should be enough for AA/DST to recall them and make the Chinese build them correctly. Could it be that the world economy affected the toy factories over there that badly?? Mine had an additional problem which I’ve read elsewhere as well- the plastic handle on the lower compartment was received with a crack- would soon cause the handle to come off. Am returning mine for exchange but would rather return it entirely until they come out with a decently made version. Am thankfull for my Master Replicas version which I bought a few years back for substantially more. The impression given by the decent quality previous AA/DST products definitely lulled a lot of us into expecting much more than we got on this item.

    I’d like to lead off by saying that this product is a good overall value considering the price point.

    Now, on to the critique: The tricorder itself suffers from a sloppy paint job, loud moire motor and poor quality audio clips. The backlit screen is also pretty badly designed . . . BUT the hand scanner is the major let-down due to the virtually inaudible (way too quiet) sound effects and the total lack of a spinning motor device!

    If you waited over a year to get this, I’d venture to guess that you’ll be less than pleased.

    I purchased the science tricorder version of this product, but they are basically the same.

    I own a prop-quality tricorder, purchased years ago at a convention, that was supposedly made by the same folks who made the props for the show. Whether or not that is true, the tricorder is a thing of beauty. It’s perfect in every detail, and only embellishes slightly on the original from the show with its multicolored LED display. They sell for hundreds or thousands of dollars on ebay, but I’ll never let mine go.

    So, being very familiar with “the real thing”, I feel it my duty to warn people that the picture shown here of the tricorder outside of the box is NOT the actual product you will be buying. It is a photograph of the high quality prop I describe above, with the medical tricorder readout replacing the original (blank) readout. Yes, the picture here is too good to be true. If you look closely at the tricorder behind it, still in the box, you may notice that it looks different and a bit chintzy. That’s because it’s a poor copy of the really nice, expensive prop. Also of note is that the picture on the back of the box itself (not shown here) is also of the expensive prop and not what’s actually inside the box. That’s pretty egregious, especially considering that all you have to do is flip the box over and look at the tricorder behind the plastic to notice that you’re getting ripped. If you buy from a physical store, that is, where you can examine the merchandise before purchasing.

    I bought this toy, knowing full well it would not be quite as good as my expensive one. But I was unpleasantly surprised at how crappy it actually is. I have the phaser and communicator these guys put out recently, and they are actually pretty darn good. The communicator especially is rather true to the original (though it has a loud motor). They fell off the horse on the tricorder. After such a long wait, I was hoping for more. I’d still buy it knowing what I know now, as it is still fun to play with, but it’s not the keepsake I had imagined it would be.
